The Christian Chronicle welcomes two new staff members

Christi Roméo is the new advertising manager, and Gabriel Grant Huff is the summer intern.

Dear Readers:

We’re excited to introduce two new Christian Chronicle team members — one for the long haul and the other for the summer.

Christi Roméo

Christi Roméo

Christi Roméo is our new advertising manager, President and CEO Erik Tryggestad announced. She succeeds Tonya Patton, who stepped down after 10 years to focus on her family and ministry interests. 

Born in Lubbock, Texas, and raised primarily in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Roméo earned a bachelor’s degree in advertising from Abilene Christian University in Texas and a master’s degree in humanities from the University of Texas at Arlington.

Her experience includes work for Healing Hands International and the Heritage Christian College Foundation. She taught college classes online and in person for over a decade, including at Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas.

Her husband, Kelly, teaches in the gaming and animation program at Oklahoma Christian University in Oklahoma City. Their son, Shea, is 14.

Gabriel Grant Huff

Gabriel Grant Huff

Our other new addition is Gabriel Grant Huff, our summer intern. The West Memphis, Ark., native is a senior at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., where he majors in multimedia journalism with a focus in news-editorial writing. 

I first met him during Harding’s annual Bible Lectureship last year, and all of his professors spoke glowingly of him. 

We’re thrilled to have him working with us at our Oklahoma City office this summer.

Welcome, Christi and Gabriel!

BOBBY ROSS JR. is Editor-in-Chief of The Christian Chronicle. Reach him at [email protected].
